Curlio.com chatted with Lucy Woodward for a lengthy interview. Asked who shifted her from her early interest in classical music to rock and roll, Woodward said, “I remember Debbie Gibson had come out, honestly. And that was the first ‘Rock and Roll’ concert I had gone to at Radio City. And I was like ‘Whoa, what is this?’ I had no idea. I was amazed that she sang and wrote, and that she had written and produced and played on everything herself. And I was blown away by that. So when she came out it was like the first… you know, and I had already been listening to Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’, that was like a major inspirational record. But when I realized that singers actually out there, young girls that actually write their own material… it was definitely Debbie Gibson. And I think “True Blue” was out around that time, Madonna, and George Michael’s ‘Faith’ around that time. So getting into those records was like, I couldn’t stop listening to them.” The interview audio at curlio.com has since been removed.
